Not a very good beer at all. Your much better sticking with AleSmith and Stone beers. Malty, not very hoppy at all, did not enjoy the aftertaste.

Light malty aroma. Pours an amber red, thin head. Flavour is dominated by caramel malt. Sugary. I found it one-dimensional and dull

Not a terrible beer...def worth a try. Very smooth, rich, nice on the palate...caramel/toffee flavor. Deep mahagony appearance... nothing too special though. Is definately one of their best offerings. Would be nice with a burger or in the sun

Airlifter (118) - Shawnee, Kansas, USA - APR 12, 2007
Bottle in Marina Del Rey. Red-amber color with tall, tan head. Mild hoppy aroma. A bit soapy and a little bland, but not bad.

IrishBoy (3920) - Bakersfield, California, USA - MAR 11, 2007
Draft at Disney’s California Adventure; Nose of roasty caramel and faint hops; brown with a small beige head; flavor is toffee, caramel malt, with a molasses note, with a very light hop finish. A lot better than the Strauss Endless Summer Light I tried after it!

riversideAK (5733) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - MAR 10, 2007
UPDATED: OCT 3, 2007 Aroma is sweet toffee and some dried fruit. Appearance is a darker red than what most would consider an amber ale. Flavor is toffee, fruit, some vanilla. It is exceptionally smooth and easy to drink, but this stuff gives me a wicked hangover for some reason. Good for an amber. More flavor than most.

Sampled at the Blarney Stone in Clairmont. A very nice amber ale that is packed full of hoppy and malty goodness. Really blows a lot of amber brews out of the water. Appearance is a nice dark red and flavor is smooth and hoppy. A quality brew.

not bad, not too great, very drinkable but lacks any further distinction, especially in the flavor department. Taste is just average.

Tmoney99 (11563) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 14, 2007
Draft sampler at brewpub downtown. Poured a clear reddish amber color with medium frothy white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate sweet toasted malt aroma. Medium body. Average sweet roasted malt flavor with a moderate smooth sweet finish of moderate duration.
